For too many years I believed INCORRECTLY that with all of the expense of diagnostics involved with assessing repair issues with the latest generation of vehicles I was DOOMED to having to rely on a dealership. I had previously owned 2 other cars as the ORIGINAL owner..an '86 Honda Accord which gave me 300000 TROUBLE FREE miles and a '96 Volvo 850 which gave me over 500000 mostly trouble-free miles for the 15 years I drove it but was still able to be diagnosed and repaired by independent mechanics for a much more reasonable price. In 2012 I became the owner of a Subaru Imprezza and dealer dependent. For many years the engine drank oil and the service centers(I tried them ALL) failed to mention that there was a warranty involved where the engine block would have been replaced and the oil consumption virtually ELIMINATED. Too many wasted containers of $30 jugs of 0W20 Full synthetic before a newly arrived customer service person advised me that I should have had the engine rebuild and "arranged" for it to be done with...a $500 "deductible"...WOOHOO?!!
